Dutchy by Ineke Mooijenkind

Our next square is by a very popular designer, Ineke Mooijenkind.  Ineke needs no introduction because you’ll surely remember her amazing Something Magic CAL that just finished up recently.  But just in case you don’t, you’ll surely want to check it out here.

Ineke was thrilled to join the FATW CAL team and started designing right away. She has designed not one, but two squares for us!  After making her first square with DK she realized that the instructions were to use Aran weight yarn.  She quickly got to work making a second square in Aran.   Being pleasantly  surprised with how nicely it worked up, she decided to make the second one slightly different but in the same colours. Ineke was inspired by the Delft Blue tiles made here the Netherlands and decided to call her square why “Dutchy”, but she tells us it would look fabulous in one color too! We absolutely love it!!!

This week we have another video by Bonnie Barker.  You can find the video at the link below under “Extra Stuff”.  We’re sure you’ll find it helpful as Bonnie guides you through the steps of this lovely square.

We recently sat down for coffee (virtually) with Ineke to chat about her life and all things crochet!  You can read all about it here.

Don’t forget the extra three rounds you’ll need to do around each square to prepare for joining and finishing your blanket. Here is the link for directions on adding the extra finishing rounds.

Translations for base rounds can be found here.

This will be necessary to get your squares to the proper ending stitch count.  It will vary slightly from week to week because the squares vary in ending stitch counts so be sure to follow the directions for each square. You may choose to add these extra rounds now or later.

We are LOVING seeing all of your finished squares on our Facebook group page, CAL – Crochet A Long….they are amazing!  Keep ’em coming!

See you next week!
